How To Install Python On Windows 10


Hey buddy, this is a detailed video tutorial
about how to install Python 3.6 on Windows. This method works on Windows 7, Windows 8
and Windows 10 and the process is exactly same. Basically first we will see if Python is installed,
and then install it and finally I will show you how to check which version of Python you
are running. To check if Python is already installed on
your Windows computer, open the start menu by clicking on the Windows Logo on the taskbar
or pressing LWin key on your keyboard. Now, start typing “command prompt” and the
first result show be the one we are looking for. Alternatively you can open a run box and type
in “cmd”. Now, click on it. Note that I have customized my command prompt
so, yours might look different but the commands are exactly same. Here type the command “python”. If you get the error: ‘python’ is not recognized
as an internal or external command, then you don’t have Python installed. Instead if It shows something like this then
you have Python installed. In that case, you don’t need to follow this
video. I recommend you to click on the top right
corner to watch another video from this channel. Now, that you know if Python is installed
or not. Let’s continue with the installation. Firstly, open your internet browser. For this video, I will be using Google Chrome. Once you have done that, head over to python.org. One cool thing here is that you can click
on this yellow button to have a python console online without installing any software or
independent of your operating system. But as we want to install on our Windows PC,
hover over the downloads menu at the navigation bar. If you are looking for a specific release
then click on the All Releases link. To download the Python Installer for Windows,
click on either of these buttons according to the version you want. For this tutorial, I will install Python 3.6. Depending on your browser it will directly
download or ask you where to save it. If asked, save the installer executable at
a remember-able location. Once the download has completed, launch the
downloaded installer executable by clicking on it. So, here is the Python Installer, make sure
you check on the Add Python 3.6 to PATH. If you don’t do it, you can cannot access
the command “python” on your Windows Command Prompt. After doing that, click on the Install Now
button to start installing Python 3.6 on your Windows computer. The installation may take anywhere from 3
to 5 minutes depending on your computer speed. Once completed, you should see something like
this. If you see this screen then your installation
was successfully completed. Now click on the close button. Let’s launch the Command Prompt once again. Now, type in the command “python” again. As you can see, if you get a prompt like this,
then Python is installed on your machine. This here is the version of the Python that
is installed on you machine. Python is a very good language for beginners
as well as a powerful language for advanced developers, so with Python installed you can
use some great modules in your projects even if you don’t actually develop python applications. So, that was it for this video. Please hit the like button if you liked this
